Say Moi wins impressively at Churchill Downs

7th-Churchill Downs, $81,115, Msw, 5-16, 3yo/up, f/m, 6f,
1:10.49, ft.
SAY MOI (f, 3, Union Rags–Sweet Nanette {MSW & GSP,
$392,845}, by You and I) found only $1.5-million Center Aisle
(Into Mischief) better after making a head-turning debut move
at Gulfstream Mar. 29, good for a solid 80 Beyer Speed Figure.
Pounded down to 7-10 this time to become the third also-ran to
score out of that potentially heat, the chestnut tracked a dueling
duo from between foes down the backside. Seemingly hard
ridden as she inched closer to the top two entering the bend,
she tipped out to take over past a :44.93 half. Kicking away from
there, she had built up enough of an edge to hold off Skinny Dip
(Into Mischief) by 1 1/4 lengths on the line. The winner is half to
Sherriff Cogburn (Vindication), SW & MGSP, $203,071. She is her
22-year-old dam=s final registered foal. Sales history: $300,000
Ylg ’18 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $53,570. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
